Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Sugar Megs site

I'm new to this site & finally figured out how to download shows. My question is what file manager could someone recommend to break the large file into separate tracks. I seem to remember people saying this can be done but am not sure. Thanks.

What burnware program is on your computer? Those with a WAVE Editor (Nero 55, 6 + 7) can cut these files into tracks.

Speaking of sites... ShnFlac.net is down tonight. No comment from operators at this time...

At this site there is a good one that's free and fairly easy to figure out >> http://www.cdwave.com

Editing files to separate tracks, I prefer doing it with FlexiMusic Wave Editor, a shareware audio editor that is available for free trial.

AudaCity has been my music editor for around three years now and i have no complaints. It's also free. If you have patience, and just a smattering of tech know-how, AudaCity will split that larger file up for you. Is it the software of choice for those looking to do professional music editing. No. However, for your needs, it will work perfectly.

Thanks for the recommendation. Two things I have little of, however, are patience & tech-know-how. I'm getting better though. I have to make this work. The first thing I DL'd was a Hank Williams concert from 1953. When I played the file I almost had a heart attack. It is from Sunset Park in PA, where about 10 years later a young Jerry wandered the grounds recording the bluegrass shows.

Hey, not a prob. Since the day when i got involved in all this music downloading, bit torrent, mp3, lossless, flac/shn, etc., it has definitely been a learning experience, and i'm more than happy to share what little knowledge i've picked up along the way. If you do happen to give AudaCity a try, just one bit of advice that i seem to have wasted a couple of hours trying to figure out. If you want to encode to mp3 using AudaCity, and i believe even if you want to convert a longer mp3 file to shorter mp3 files, you have to load an mp3 encoder into AudaCity. I use LAME, and i've found that it works very well indeed. However, i am not so tech-savvy that i can go into the various tech reasons and history of LAME. For that, this page is useful:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAME

However, once you've acquired both AudaCity and the LAME mp3 software, i can at least do my best to get you started. Post here on the forum or e-mail me at my address that i posted in this thread:

In addition, i have a ton of GD and JGB shows that i converted from WAV into MP3 (relax people, purely for playing on my computer), and will be happy to send you a DVD chock-full of GD/JGB shows encoded at 256kbs ... high enough quality that you won't have any complaints about the quality of sound. It would save you having to do the conversion yourself, and you'd be getting higher quality mp3 files at the same time.

Thanks for the offer on the Dead/JGB shows. I have most of what I was originally looking for, this site has been an awesome way to add shows I didn't know about. My main reason for wanting to make Suger Megs work is the variety of other artists I don't have--Bill Monroe, David Bromberg, etc. Also, I will give Audacity a try. If I get stuck, thanks in advance for your offer to help.
